A good approach would be to write your code so that it can run under both plain CGI and mod_perl (or FastCGI or SpeedyCGI or PPerl for that matter).

Basically, this only means that you show some extra discipline concerning global variables, proper namespacing and such. Using a framework like CGI::Application takes you a long way here.

This way, you can have the extreme availability and ease-of-installation of pure CGI and if your site gets popular enough for performance issues to come into play, you can switch over to mod_perl. The code will continue to work (and be much faster, mainly due to eliminated startup time)

Making extensive use of mod_perl specific features (that would tie you into this architecture) is probably a lot of fun, but I do not think it is really worth the loss of flexibility.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
